I am back and healthy…and buried in work. However, it’s time for the last book giveaway (for a while, at least), and it’s a great one.
Vintage Tomorrows is the book to hand to anyone who asks about steampunk. Whether it’s about the maker culture, the fashion trends, the history behind the alternative history, the literature, the art, the music, or anything else you can think of, this book does its best to cover it. (In fact, there was so much to include that there’s a supplementary ebook available – for free! –as well. See below for details.)
Written by historian James H. Carrott and futurist Brian David Johnson, Vintage Tomorrows looks at the history that never was, and also at the future which still may be. It’s a great read, and highly recommended.
We have one copy to give away! This one is easy: to enter the giveaway, post a comment below and tell us, in one sentence, what steampunk means to you. (Mine is one word: “Optimism.”) The deadline for the giveaway is Monday, April 1st (no joke). Good luck!
The free companion book to Vintage Tomorrows, titled Steampunking Our Future, is available for download!
